The Kenya National Women team, Harambee Starlets, has made notable positive strides in their campaign to qualify for their first Women global competition, the  World Cup to be jointly co-hosted by  Australia and New Zealand.

In 2016, Harambee Starlets made their maiden appearance in the Africa Women Cup of Nations held in Cameroon, bowing out at the first round at the hands of Nigeria, Mali, and Ghana.

The team then made a guest appearance at the COSAFA Women Championship held in Zimbabwe in September 2017, finishing fourth behind South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Zambia

Starlets went on to make their second appearance in the 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations held in Ghana.

Harambee Starlets made it to the semi-final stage of the Tokyo Olympics qualifier after suffering a 1-0 loss at the hands of Zambia who went ahead to win the return leg.

The 2019 CECAFA Women Championship saw Harambee Starlets taking the crown after defeating reigning champions and hosts Tanzania 2-0.

In 2020, Harambee Starlets were invited to take part in the Turkish Women’s Cup where they came in third behind Chile and Ghana.

Currently, the team aims at making its third appearance in the 2022 Africa Women Cup of Nations that will also act as a qualifier for the 2023 FIFA Women World Cup.
